    Tom do you own this one ? o_O
    Kevin - Thanks - Six Romer were listed in the rank list fortunately only one was a DR. so this is certainly him considering pursuing a research file on the Dr.

    Larry - I do

    A recent pickup my first since the Max. A Holler fitted with the Type 3 Holler crossguard. While a common variety I was looking for a special example to fill the slot in my crossguard collection. The dagger has an earlier style scabbard band variation seen with the single reverse screw. The ends of the bands have a Holler enhancement detail of punched acorns. The blade fortunately is real nice exhibiting cross grain running length wise down the center segment and opposite direction on the edges a trait you see on many Holler army blades. For you maker mark guys (John Z) it has the 19 tick very finely detailed Holler mark. What made it special was the Personalization Hptm. Kientz a one looker for me but unfortunately I have not been able to locate Kientz in my rank lists.

    Default Eickhorn Heer Aluminum - Elfenbein

    All aluminum Eickhorn resurrected from a 25 year nap in a trunk complete with original hangers. These daggers are quite scarce and tend to be in poor shape due to the all aluminum construction and one piece integral scabbard throat. This dagger is an exception although it suffers from a few imperfections prone to these examples. The dagger has a few minor dings here and there also the scabbard runners are loose inside the scabbard. The plating is thin on these aluminum examples this one has some bubbling on the scabbard but all the plating remains except a tiny spot on the tip of the scabbard. Remnants of a gold-ish colored lacquer remain scattered through out the dagger. Fortunately this one has survived in great condition and one of the best I have seen itís untouched and has a pleasing coal black patina to the early Eickhorn Type-1 style silver plated aluminum fittings and scabbard. The tapered tang blade is a beauty with most if not all crossgrain remaining with a nice black 35-41 Eickhorn maker mark the tip has an insignificant bend. The Ivory grip is very beautiful and damage free it exhibits some beautiful tones of yellow and orange a beautiful contrast against the coal black fittings. Overall a beautiful example of this rare variation I wish I knew who the owner was as I suspect he was an individual of status and wealth these ivory grips were very expensive during the period. Thanks to a dear friend who put me on to the piece - it was fun filled ride acquiring it and adding it to my collection.
